Latino Leaders Meet to Oppose DREAM Act
While i feel sorry for children who were dragged over the border by their parents, have only known life in America, this is not the time to stuff a bill through the congress. A lame duck session? Really?

Well it is there last chance to screw the American public and not answer for it. A good many of them have been fired and are only waiting for their last check.
Not so different from a disgruntled employee who knows that Friday is his last day so he does what ever he can to cause a mess for others to fix after he is gone.

The majority of "hispanics" living in the USA may be illegals, but that doesn't mean there aren't a minority of hispanics who are Americans and who love this country and respect it's laws. Not all "hispanics" are here illegally or born to illegals. Some are long time Americans, whose roots go way way back. Yes, they are now the minority of Spanish surname people. They actually tend to be quite patriotic to the USA.

They don't know Spanish????? That's about the most absurd thing I've ever heard. Why is our government spending billions of dollars on "ESL" programs in schools? Why all the "bilingual" teachers? Why all the Spanish radio and television? The marque uno para espanol and dos para ingles options with phone calls now?

The parents don't teach their children English. Their FIRST language is Spanish.

And yes minor age children should return home with their parents. It would be cruel to force these illegals to return home without their children.

And contrary to the lies of the open borders crowd, Mexico has schools, it has a middle class and it has universities.

I know of Americans who had children and brought children overseas with them, for example military families, children born in Germany. When the parents returned home to the USA, there was never any thought that the children would be abandoned, left behind. And the children adjust to life in the USA, even if their first years were in some other country. It would be no different for a child smuggled over the border at age 2 returning home with his parents at age 10 or 14.

Blacknight's question was..."Latino leaders in what"?

simple, simple question.

Here is the answer blacknight. Leah Durant, PFIR executive director is the Latino leader for FAIR and Frank Morris, PFIRís vice president is the Latino leader for CIS.

Must they be sanctioned by La Raza to qualify as "Latino" leaders?

Itís interesting that ONLY pro-illegal Latinos are deemed worthy of "leadership" designation.
